Annie and Al's Juke Joint is an idea that both of them have been talking about for a while.
The Juke Joint goes way back and was always a place for workers to meet up at the end of the working week to relax, listen to music, dance and have a great time with friends.
Al's music is greatly influenced by the Blues, and Blues Swamp Southern are well known for their Southern Swampy feel and have recently been voted by The Derby Gig Guide "The Best Blues Band"
The band performs their acoustic set and is made up of Musicians Al Shotter, Bob Dayfield and Nick Hough who will open the afternoon.
Annie has travelled and performed the length and breadth of both the UK and extensively around America with her steadfast guitarist Rob Hines and have played a variety of venues along the way, including the famous Juke Joints down in the Mississippi which is where the idea evolved to start something like it back home.

Ann Duggan will be leading these monthly events which run from 2-5pm and with guest artists each month to mix things up a little.
This month's Guest Artist:
Hicks and Goulbourn – quintessential acoustic music
Fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Steve Hicks and singer songwriter Lynn Goulbourn met at a gig in 2007. With a mutual love of folk, jazz, roots and acoustic genres, their musical partnership has flourished and taken them to all corners of the UK, to Germany, France, The Netherlands and the USA.
They thrive on the creative process of stretching established boundaries and perform mesmeric arrangements of traditional, contemporary and self – penned songs and music.
Expect the unexpected …….
